“Fabulous Apartment- Highly Recommended”
Reviewed February 18, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Could write pages about this beautiful apartment and its location but sadly not enough time!
This was the first time we had visited Madeira and certainly won't be the last. Our host Michael was amazing - so helpful and interesting - gave us lots of information about the island and even took us (as he was on route) to a few places - very kind and thoughtful.
The apartment was stunning very stylish and was fitted out so well - a lot of thought to detail. The views were breathtaking looking down over Funchal and the harbour and out to sea.
The location is as far as we were concerned probably one of the best on the Island - Your neighbours are locals rather than tourists and it was good to hear the sounds of every day life. There are a few shops and bars at the top of the road (about 5 mins walk) including an amazing bakery(and cafe) and a fruit and vegetables shop (which sold other basic food items). However the apartment is situated at the top of a steep road which is manageable and there are alternate routes which are easier so not to be put off by this - however at the end of our 11 days we were sprinting up the road instead of stopping every few paces!!
As we were staying over a week Michael provided us with basic food items such as bread, milk, juice, coffee, butter a really nice bottle of wine and an amazing bowl of fruit including local fruit which we had never seen before! There were other items left by previous guests such as oil sugar, salt etc which was very
useful.

I would highly recommend this apartment and we would not consider staying anywhere else (unless full !!)

“Great views from comfortable apartment”
Reviewed January 23, 2017 for a stay in January 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This is a very pleasant apartment for 2 people with a great view over the bay at Funchal. It's been thoughtfully designed and equipped by Michael. As we were staying for a week he provided useful basic supplies and also a huge bowl of delicious local fruits. We loved the view from the terrace even though we had to wrap up in the the cosy fleece provided for the January evenings.
The spiral staircase up to the apartment was manageable if narrow (both over 60, one with slight mobility problems). The number 15 bus which runs roughly once an hour (but with a gap of almost 2 hours between 3pm and 4.45pm most days) is an alternative to a short but fairly steep walk from the centre.
We would certainly stay here again if we go back to Madeira again.

Our stay at Casa Pico Musica was great. The location is amazing and the views are spectacular. We were able to experience everyday life in Madeira just like the locals: you are awoken to church bells ringing and cocks crowing and the sounds of everyday life. Michael was the perfect host. He went out of his way to make us feel at home and very welcome in beautiful Madeira. We are already missing the island life very much. This place is highly recommended.

“Comfortable, Modern Apartment with Wonderful Views”
Reviewed August 30, 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed for 5 nights in mid-August. Michael was away on our day of arrival, but we were greeted by his partner, who did a great job showing us around the apartment and even gifted us with a bottle of wine for our first evening.

The apartment is extremely well finished in a very modern way with some beautifully thought-out features such as the lighting in the bedroom and balcony area. The kitchen is very well equipped with all you need on a holiday. There is no oven, but there is a washing machine which is very useful for a longer stay. Ice cubes ready in the freezer on our arrival were particularly appreciated!

The balcony seating area is cool on a hot day and is a perfect place to take in the views during the day and the stunning Funchal lights in the evening or enjoy a meal.

The bathroom is well equipped and the bedroom very comfortable.

The only potential downsides to this apartment are the very steep walk down to and up from the town and the steep spiral staircase up to the apartment from the garden, which might be a problem for someone with difficulty walking.

Overall, we loved our stay and would definitely recommend this property and would visit again!

Many thanks for your thoughtful and thorough review, unfortunately we cannot do much about the steep walk up to and down from the apartment but have already taken note about the lack of an oven and currently looking into having a combination microwave and convection oven to replace the simple microwave. I do not think yet another electrical appliance in the kitchen would be a good idea due to loss of work surface space. Once again many thanks for taking the trouble to submit a review and pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us and on Madeira

From the start of our booking til the end of our holiday Michael the owner of the property was great. He responded and confirmed our booking within 10 minutes so therefore I could go ahead with booking our flights so our holiday to the beautiful Island of Madeira was booked within half an hour. We had a welcome pack on arrival, milk, cheese, butter, fresh juice, bread, coffee cereals & a lovely bottle of wine, all the above we could choose for example white, brown, sliced or unsliced bread, full fat, semi or skimmed milk. This we thought was a really lovely touch. Michael offered to pick us up from the airport but we hired a car so he sent us extremely good directions to the apartment. On arrival we were shown around the fab accommodation and had a welcome glass of wine. Firstly lovely and clean. We loved everything about the apartment especially the enormous covered terrace which we sat and had our morning coffee ( great coffee machine that steams milk by the way) sat at most evenings with a few glasses of wine overlooking Funchal and the sea, the view is beautiful. We ate in most nights as the modern kitchen has everything needed to cater for our 10 night stay, including a washing machine,we also made use of the bbq. The bedroom leads off the kitchen diner which has a comfy double bed, great television with loads of channels to watch. The bathroom, beautifully designed has a great shower. There is a small balcony off the bedroom which gets the sun nearly all day so any sun worshippers like me will love. As stated by others you access the apartment through your own gate then up the steep spiral staircase which you get used to very quickly, we're in our 50's and had no problem at all. This was our second visit to Madeira,the first time we stayed we were a good 20 minute walk away from Funchal centre so decided we wanted to be closer this time. The apartment is in a nice area with shops nearby for essentials, there's a big supermarket a little further away which sells everything. We had a lovely walk into the centre one day which took about 10 minutes. We visited some beautiful places,Ponta Do Sol twice as this is apparently the sunniest on the west coast, only about 15 minutes by car from Funchal, Porto Moniz which is definitely worth a visit. As stated we had a car for the whole of our holiday so were able to visit some of the many reccomended places easily. We really didn't want our holiday to end Madeira is beautiful.From start to finish Michael made our holiday even more special, there if we needed anything but never intrusive so thank you Michael we can't wait to return.

We stayed in Michaels apartment for a week. We were given bread, milk, jam, butter, wine, fruit, tea,coffee, sugar and cereals on our arrival which was a lovely gesture and also helped us with the essentials for the week. The apartment was really nice and stylish, great shower, felt like we were staying in a local area not full of tourists. Amazing views of the surrounding areas from the outdoor living room and balcony! Located up a steep hill and spiral staircase to the apartment, which we managed ok. Supermarkets close by and funchal town 5-10 min walk away. Michael was the perfect host, respecting our space yet always available to help with advice and guidance on the local area.
